25 June 2014 11:04

New Southampton boss Ronald Koeman may have players on his books who are looking for moves away from the club but he is wasting no time on bringing in new talent. The manager has experience with several Dutch and Spanish teams as both a player and manager but is keen on Serbian Dusan Tadic who plays for Eredivisie club FC Twente according to The Mirror.

The 25-year-old Serbian international who plays as an attacking mmirridfielder signed for Twente in 2012 for 7.7million Euros. The player is versatile, able to play on the wings as well as a second striker and will be well known to Koeman from his time with Feyernoord.

Tadic has made 66 appearences for Twente since 2012, scoring 28 goals in the league and 13 in Europe. The primarily left-sided midfielder is also known for his flamboyant dribbling skills which will go down well with The Saints. The 2014-15 Premier League season will be an interesting one for Southampton after losing a great manager to Spurs as well as Lambert to Liverpool and with Shaw and Lallana looking for moves to Liverpool and Manchester United.

Koeman will do well to keep Southampton in the Premier League with such disruption to the team and will face non other than Liverpool in their first match at Anfield followed by hosting West Brom and then a trip to Upton Park.
